Dear accessinfo,

If the Data Controller does not know the legal definitions of agent and principal, and does not know if Southwark Borough Council is acting as an agent for a principal; we do not know what else to clarify.

A relation between two or more persons, by which one party, usually called the agent or attorney, is authorized to do certain acts for, or in relation to (lie rights or property of the other, who is denominated the principal, constituent, or employer.

Black's Law Dictionary, 6th ed., p. 63. Agent: A person authorized by another (principal) to act for or in place of him; one instructed with another's business. Humphries v. Going, D.C.N.C., 59 F.R.D. 583, 587.

In commercial law, a principal is a person, legal or natural, who authorizes an agent to act to ... Borrowing parallel concepts from Tort and Equity, this means that the Principal owes the Third Party a duty of care to ensure that the Agent is honest ...

Dear accessinfo,

We understand that an agent is one who represents and acts for another under the contract or relation of agency; authorised by another (principal) to act for or in their place.

We further understand that and agent is one one who undertakes to transact some business, or to manage some affair, for another, by the authority and on account of the latter, and to render an account of it. One who acts for or in place of another by authority from them; a substitute, a deputy, appointed by the principal with power to do the things which the principal may do.

Furthermore, we understand that an agent is one who deals not only with things, as does a servant, but with persons, using his own discretion as to means, and frequently establishing contractual relations between his principal and third parties; one authorised to transact all business of the principal, or all of principal’s business of some particular kind, or all business at some particular place.

Yours sincerely,

George Tsigarides
